Subject [mp1] 1.29 release candidate #1
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2003 23:15:07 GMT
The mod_perl 1.29 release candidate #1 has arrived. It can be
downloaded here:

MD5 : 9f3e81dcdea7cdda3715631c25e446ef
SHA1: 1d14efb2ad89750dabcb3780b92992c1b8744551

The summary of what has changed since 1.28 are (from Changes):

Add a workaround for the 'rand' bug for perl 5.8.1 (compiled with
either -DUSE_HASH_SEED or -DUSE_HASH_SEED_EXPLICIT, which is the
default), causing all forked procs to produce the same rand
sequence. [Stas]

For Win32, add an INSTALL_LIB option to 'perl Makefile.PL' to
allow one to specify where to install mod_perl.lib. If not
given, this defaults to APACHE_SRC\libexec, if this exists.
Suggested by Steve Hay [randyk]

Fix t/net/perl/ (called by modules/symbol) not to affect other
tests (internal/http-get and internal/http-post, which were failing to
call exit) [Stas]

Fix Apache::ExtUtils to work with blead perl (it was breaking the
build) [Stas]

On Win32 the uploaded file wasn't cleaned up (weither it's a bug in or not), make sure we don't leave any dropped files around
[Steve Hay <>]

For Win32, keep drive letters in mod_perl.dsp to fix bug, reported 
by DH <>, when compiling mod_perl in
cases where Apache and Perl are on different drives [Randy Kobes]. 

Add workaround to define statcache in Apache.xs so that
one can build on Win32 ActivePerl 8xx with LARGE_FILES
support [Randy Kobes]
